[Bug 1425398] Re: Apparmor uses rsyslogd profile for different processes - utopic HWE


There's a chance this is the AppArmor "cross profile" IPC check; when
one process performs an IPC operation with a second process, in
different profiles, both profiles have to allow the operation.

If my guess is right, these ought to be silenced by changing:

  /dev/log wl,
  /dev/log rwl,

in the /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.rsyslogd file and reloading the policy
with apparmor_parser --replace /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.rsyslogd

  I've noticed that apparmor loads /usr/sbin/rsyslogd profile for
  completely unrelated processes:

  I'm not sure how apparmor decides which profile to use for which task, but is shouldn't load '/usr/sbin/rsyslogd' profile for sshd/ntpd/etc.
